THEY must to keep their certainty accuse

All that are different of a base intent;

Pull down established honour; hawk for news

Whatever their loose fantasy invent

And murmur it with bated breath, as though

The abounding gutter had been Helicon

Or calumny a song.How can they know

Truth flourishes where the student's lamp has shone,

And there alone, that have no Solitude?

So the crowd come they care not what may come.

They have loud music, hope every day renewed

And heartier loves; that lamp is from the tomb.

.: The Leaders of the Crowd :.

Written when Ireland was divided over England's offer of a peace treaty; and both factions in Ireland sought to demonize the other. Relevant today, when Republicans seeking to return Bush for a second term are willing to denigrate John Kerry and other Democrats in all manner of ways.

The latter half of the poem has me a bit confused, and that's why I was looking for another's critique of the poem. That's how I found this page. Although, if I may continue my analogy from the previous paragraph, the line "So the crowd come they care not what may come", it really does remind me of a Republican strategy rooted in a disregard for truth, integrity, honor, or future consequences. Should Bush be re-elected, as it seems he will be, I shudder to think of what our country will become. Here I think Yeats has identified one of the evils of partisan politics - the tendency to attempt destruction of the opponent.
